We Are All 25 Years Older Than The Golden Girls Were Back Then

I would feel absolutely remiss if we did not make note of a very special anniversary of extreme significance to so many of you out there: It has been a quarter of a century to the day since the premiere of “The Golden Girls,” a show that spoke to such a diverse constituency and still empowers so many. Here is what America looked like a short time after the program’s debut. Compare and contrast with the way America is now. Also, RIP for all the dead ladies and best wishes to Betty White.
